This unbelievable paragraph appeared in the New York Times, online:

“With his bushy beard and his booming anti-American rhetoric, Mr. Castro, who turns 80 next Sunday, will linger in the Cuban imagination far into the future as a double image – one, the romantic revolutionary of 19S8, promising Cuba equality, prosperity and independence; the other, the prisoner of a half-century of confrontation with the United States that kept Cuba from evolving in a way that could deliver on the promises.”

You may choose between hero and frustrated hero.
